It was after the dealer and the station executive returned to Japan that they knew that the U.S. had that very unique legal theory about cartoon figures, when the head of the copyright section of the TV station examined the contract signed in the U.S. and noticed that the U.S. had a legal practice to treat cartoon characters as intellectual property.

In other words, the cartoon character was (to use the current term) a core patent, and if he sold it to the other party, he could develop and release any cartoons, animated cartoons, stage plays, novels, products, etc. using the Eighth Man character without any consent from the Japanese original creators of Eighth Man. The station executive and the dealer thought they had sold the cartoon program as if it were exporting a transistor radio or a car, but soon they were shocked to notice that they had lost an important key patent to the Americans.

This bitter experience in 1965 taught them, and eventually the Japanese publishers and animation producers, a great lesson. It also led to the development of the Japanese animation industry in a different direction than that of the US.
